Livestream, the New York-based live video services company, is getting traction with its premium service, booking some $350,000 per month in revenue from 1,000 premium customers who pay $350 each.
CEO and founder Max Haot gave us this rundown last month in San Francisco when we interviewed him at the NewTeeVee Live event.
The company has a two tier offering: a free, advertiser supported platform, and a paid solution with no ads with optional Livestream branding.
In this interview, he says that Livestream is powering 100 million streams to 15 million* unique users per month.
He also told us about his company's platform for the iPhone, which does not entail a downloadable application.
